The Blurb

In the summer of 1962, nothing could prepare Dr. Charles Campbell for his first meeting with his new client, Marilyn Monroe. A reputable psychiatrist, he’s been hired by a studio executive to handle and subdue the star, no matter what it takes. Although he’s been warned about Ms. Monroe’s unpredictability, she’s not what he expected.

In the days that follow, Charles’ world is turned upside-down. Marilyn shares her secrets and threatens to go public with information that could ruin her career and destroy President Kennedy’s administration. Saving Marilyn from her self-destructive ways and crossing doctor-patient boundaries, might also cost Charles Campbell his life.

The Review

There are some deaths throughout history that have left people wondering about the validity of the reports on them. One such death is Marilyn Monroe’s. Conspiracy theorists have put forth likely scenarios over what actually happened to her rather than the autopsy report of accidental overdose. One of these theories is explored in Mercedes King’s book A Dream Called Marilyn.

A Dream Called Marilyn is a fictional account of the last few weeks of Marilyn Monroe’s life as told through the eyes of her (fictional) therapist, Dr Charles Campbell. The story explores the theory that Marilyn was murdered due to her relationship with both of the Kennedy brothers – John and Bobby; it also looks at her possibly mob connections and links her death to Frank Sinatra.

It is actually a really fascinating read and is unbearably sad if it is true.

If you are a fan of Marilyn Monroe or indeed fictionalised conspiracy theories then A Dream Called Marilyn is the book for you.
